Member Spotlight: Benjamin Murphy

The talent in our community never ceases to impress me, and as the pool of members grow, so do their variety of medium.

That leads me to the discovery of Benjamin Murphy, who likes to draw directly onto walls with electrical tape as his ink. Yes, that's right, sticky, sticky, black tape and he's pretty damn good at it too. You can find Benjamin in the U.K. or at his blog, ALL DESTRUCTO.

In Good Company

Just don't ask E.A. Small to do your portrait. Her unforgiving pen depicts moles, wrinkles, lots of bad hair, and perhaps the largest collection of ugly sweaters around. Her art is as unpretentious as her cast of characters, but just as entertaining.

Yelp Yack

I think it's safe to say that as artists we are always looking for a reason to draw -- something that will inspire us to take pencil to paper and draw on the mockingly bright white sheet. San Francisco based artist Jessica Wassil found it in the brutally real and often obnoxious voices of anonymous Yelp reviewers. She makes colorful drawings of the original review and rating and posts them to her blog weekly. After visiting Yelp Yack, you'll never read another review the same way.

Tell the Truth

It's raw. It's child-like. It's spontaneous. It's stupid, stupidly funny. Thank you, Mr. Red, for your simplistic wit.

Overwhelmed

Not everything is lost, but it sure does feel like it. July has been a very slow month for Doodlers Anonymous, the slowest of all the months since our humble beginnings almost two years ago.

We are going through a transition of sorts. Lots is happening, but nothing is happening at the same time. We are working on upgrading some elements of DA, while adding new sections as well. It's all in development right now. Nothing that you can see until launch, of course.

It's been a long time coming and completely devouring up all of my free time. What's worse is that it's stealing my energy from keeping the current site alive and well with fresh content. And as each day goes on, it gets even harder to fall back into the routine of maintaining the current. I feel kinda lost.

I'll say this much, though. It will be well worth the effort. For those of you that keep coming back, a big thank you. Everyday I find new links from blogs and illustrators alike linking to Doodlers Anonymous. It's beyond encouraging.

And so this post is an effort to get myself back into the swing of things, while also showing off some great doodles from our members. For this entry I simply searched the word "lost" within the Doodlers Anonymous flickr group and happily discovered this handful of goodies. Keep it going forever.

Cardboardcities

Hope you all had a nice Memorial Day weekend. I spent mine away from the computer for four straight days. This morning, I felt myself jonesing for beautiful imagery, for color, for something that makes me want to drop everything I'm doing at the moment and just draw. I found it.

Feast your eyes on the work of Laura Reburn. Her lines get messy. Her colors and patterns are brilliant. But most of all, her illustration takes care of that overwhelming crave for simple goodness, the kind that brings a little smirk to your face.
